CBR - ADAM BEECHEN TALKS BATMAN BEYOND

Posted by Bob Tilley Thursday, 18 March 2010

Its a Batman Beyond freenzy! Adam Beechen has also been interviewed by CBR today to talk about his much anticipated run on the Batman Beyond mini-series coming June.


Here's what he had to say...

CBR News: Very cool news that you’ll be writing a "Batman Beyond" mini series. How did the project come about?

Adam Beechen: [DC Co-Publisher] Dan DiDio visited L.A. in December of 2008, and we had a meeting, and he mentioned this project as a possibility for me. He encouraged me to come up with a pitch for Editor Ian Sattler, which I did. The pitch was nothing more than the title of the story arc sent in an e-mail – two words – and Ian flipped out over it, in a good way, and immediately asked me to write a full-blown summary of the mini series. I did that, and when I saw Dan again at the San Diego Comic-Con in 2009, he told me the series was greenlit.

I know you’ve worked with WB/DCU Animation in the past but how familiar are you with the "Batman Beyond" TV series?

Pretty familiar. Like a ton of people, many of whom are reading this, I was a voracious consumer of Warner Bros. superhero animation stuff – still am, actually. So I followed the show pretty closely. I loved it – thought it was a great extension of the mythology that made perfect sense for what we already knew about the characters and their world.

Will you be going back and watching the old TV episodes on DVD to prepare for this assignment?

Yes, with great excitement. Any excuse to watch those episodes again is a good one.

What do you love about the concept of a Batman from the future? And what about Terry in particular?

I love the idea of the cowl getting passed down from generation to generation. It makes Batman a concept, in addition to being an individual. It sends the message that, as long as there are criminals, there will be a Batman to strike fear into their hearts.

Terry’s great because, unlike Bruce, in whom the seeds of becoming the Batman were planted at a very formative age, creating profound obsession, Terry came to it later in life, when he was already a teenager. He already had opinions and outlooks he had formed, so he can be more conflicted about being Batman than Bruce could ever be.


You have scripted Batman in the past, but I don’t believe you have written future Bruce Wayne. How will you go about finding his voice?

My idea of his voice is a slightly softened version of what Frank Miller did in “The Dark Knight.” Grim and gritty, pretty dark and cynical, but maybe a little more willing to socialize – at least with Terry. And Ace.
